A Hop and a Skip

Hey guys, welcome back to another one of my Screenshot topics!

A couple of days ago I decided to fly my first long haul flight. (Yes I’ve been an avid user of the app since 2016 and haven’t flown a long haul I’m aware). I flew the amazing 747-8F in the incredibly smooth CargoLux Livery from John F. Kennedy International to Luxembourg Airport. It was a feat for myself and my phone, not used to extended periods of use on an app (except for my TikTok addiction)

Anyway, enjoy the photos!

Overall I enjoyed the first longish flight that i’ve undertaken and would love to do it when I next have a large block of time.

Until the next time, safe flying!

now time to reopen TikTok and be on there for the remainder of the week

It should be 8F instead of 800F ;)
